The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard to protect workers from the risk of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Infectious pathogens include the Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others.

This standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation companies. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.

Also, the BOPIM standard has several requirements, including:

  • Conduct a Health and Safety Assessment (OSHA requirement)
  • Using work practice, administrative, and engineering controls
  • Using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Proper handling, transport, and disposal of hazardous medical waste materials
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • Mandatory training
  • Record keeping

Bloodborne Pathogens

The risk of bloodborne pathogen exposure is present in nearly all projects that call for blood and bodily fluid cleanup. Proper training and safety guideline and procedure adherence is very important for the safety of those performing cleanup duties as well as the occupants who will return to the property after biohazard remediation is finished.
